Our school vision is:
Where every child shines
“Let your light shine before men, that they might see your good works, and glorify your Father in Heaven” Matthew 5:16
Our vision reminds us of the importance of our actions. Our actions allow us to let our light shine.
Jesus said “I am the light of the world” (John 8.12) and as he spoke to those around him said “you are the light of the world” as we aim to follow Jesus in our lives. The vision was developed through this aspirational lens where all God’s children are called to “give glory” to our Father in heaven through our “good works” as our actions. Where we see light as knowledge, illumination and intelligence, our ethos and actions are important for us to let our light shine and to share the light of Jesus with those around us.
Our vision is rooted in this theology and reflects both the Trust’s vision of Learning for life and the Leicestershire Diocesan Board of Education vision of ‘Transforming the lives of children and young people’. Our vision linked to the gospel reference reflects the context of the school as a beacon of hope, a light on a hill (literally) for those within the school and outside the school, for the future and as custodians of God’s world within our rural village community.
The most recent Ofsted report (September 2023) described the school as a “small school with a big heart where everyone is respected”.
Our school has an accepting, nurturing and inclusive attitude towards others and we create a loving and safe environment for our children and staff guided by God. In our nurturing way we aspire for everyone to be the best they can be that God intended us to be.
